Hippeastrum: the gardener's amaryllis

Dear all;
	I just got my copy of this delightful book by Veronica Read, 
the National Collection holder. I don't recall any mention on this 
list. It is a joint Timber Press/RHS publication from earlier this 
	I admit not having read much more than the Table of Contents 
and a few pages. The photo section was a revelation to me. An 
enormous number of interesting selections and hybrids in the 
horticultural world. I fear severe Hippeastrum lust developing. 
Perhaps the need for a group order of mini-hybrids from Miyake 
Nursery in Japan (to paraphrase Homer Simpson " Drool").
	I hope someone knowledgeable about this group and this book 
will respond with intelligent comments. I am blinded by the glory.

	Maybe a group discount might be arranged too.

	More later as my head stops spinning.

		Best	Jim W.
